How Lash Extensions Can Minimize the Effects of Aging

Aging is inevitable. It happens to all of us. Keeping a youthful glow is incredibly important to many women. Luckily, there are many ways to preserve your skin and slow the process of aging to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best!

As women grow older, natural signs of aging begin to occur. You can start to see signs of aging on your face and around your under-eye. Opting for lash extensions can help women tackle some of these changes, allowing them to set back the clock and stay looking youthful for as long as possible.

We’ve put together a guide to help you better understand how eyelash extensions can help you cultivate your natural beauty! 

Prepping for Your Extensions

For optimal results and better retention, it is essential to properly prep your skin before getting lash extensions. No matter your client’s age, following these steps will play a crucial role in obtaining optimal results.

As we age, our skin tends to become more oily. However, this minor inconvenience can be tackled with ease with the right products. By using specialized lash foam and primer, your lash technician can minimize the excess oil on your skin.

Lash primer is an excellent product that balances the pH level of natural lashes and dissolves any natural oil or makeup residue. This helps the bond between the volume or classic set eyelash extensions and natural lashes become more secure.

What type of Lash Extensions are Best to Reduce the Effects of Aging?

Lash extensions can help brighten your skin and create a youthful look, so choosing the right extensions to reduce the effects of aging is essential!

1. Lightweight Lashes

Our lashes tend to lose their natural strength and can become thin over time. As a result, your natural lashes may be damaged or shed quickly if your lash extensions are too heavy. We suggest you choose a lash that is lightweight to ensure better retention. 

2. Volumized Lashes

Our lashes tend to become thin as we age, which may result in your natural lashes shedding. This can be frustrating if you want a volumized look. Luckily, a customized set of wide fan volume lashes can help keep your lashes looking lush and healthy!

Lash extensions ranging between 0.10-0.15mm in diameter can help create a voluminous and luscious-looking lash. The length of the classic or volume eyelash extensions must be at least 2 mm longer than your natural lashes. If the extensions are too long, they may fall out prematurely.

Clients with hooded eyelids may benefit from slightly long lashes to make their eyes appear bigger and more open.

3. Tinted Lashes

With age, our hair inevitably loses color. The same goes for our beautiful natural lashes, as they tend to fade over time. As a result, your lash artist may choose to step away from the classic black lash color and opt for a subtle brown to create a more natural look. This color choice is an excellent alternative if you don’t want your lashes to look too bold. 

4. Curled Lashes 

As you age, your skin may lose elasticity, causing a droopy appearance. This is why it’s so important to choose the right curl for your custom lashes in order to make your eyes appear more open.

Thankfully, we’ve found a great solution. Our L and L+ Curl Lashes are a great way to enhance your eyes. They were created to give a wide-eye effect to clients with deep-set eyes or hooded eyelids. For a more dramatic look, clients can opt for L+ curls. In addition, they can help to add a bit more dimension to your extensions. 


We cannot control the fact that we age. However, we can control the ways in which we preserve our beauty. Eyelash extensions can be a great way to minimize the effects of aging and create a vibrant appearance. Extensions can also take the hassle out of your daily makeup routine! They are very convenient and help to save you time. In addition to eyelash extensions, applying concealer is another excellent way to minimize the effects of aging.
